As we are now on 13.04 with a couple of updates, and as 13.04 seems
slightly slicker and more stable already than was 12.10, I'm surprised
you have not yet tried the current distro! Generally - because of their
history of use - a distribution upgrade often seems to give problems
that a fresh install of the new distro is often better, quicker and
simpler! Others may disagree, but personally, I work on two
hard-drives, one with the current distro and one with the next (testing)
version. During the next few days, I will install 13.10 Saucy
Salamander from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ and start
using it as dual boot with Raring Ringtail as the second option.
Kind regards, Barry.
